Well, here is a strange story,
I have two budgies, male olive SF spangle opaline
and the female is sky blue SF spangle opaline.

But I got Normal olive chick from them
(but he sure is cute!) (his name is Oliver)

I know there is 25% change to get normal from two SF spangles,
but I should get 100% opaline from two opalines, right?
All their previous chicks were opalines.

Can we see some pictures of the parents please? Are you cage or colony breeding? :)

It is impossible to get a olive chick from a sky blue parent even of the other parent is an olive :) From this pair you should have all dark greens or cobalt blues if the dad is split for blue. Can you post a picture of the chick? :)

And yes you are correct, if both of the parents were opaline you would get 100% opalines, so if both parents are opaline there is a different father or mother to the chick :)

was there any chance for your female to mate with a different male than the father? Clutches can have multiple fathers.

maybe he is not opaline, maybe his stripes are just very thin?
All their other chicks were opalines.

Thanks!!:p

I think its so funny,
it is then 25% change to get normal from two SF spangles
and its 25% change to get normal from normal split opaline male
and opaline female.
and I got all that 25% package :)
I only got this baby from this pair.
They are on eggs again,
so cross fingers I will get more than one
chick this time :)
